Confirmation seminar presented by Yuyang Zhu.

Salinity rises due to lack of natural flooding and excess river water usage is threating the health of alluvial floodplains. To minimise salinity impacts, it is important to quantify floodplain groundwater and salt migration processes, in particular, groundwater recharge to the saline aquifer and salt discharge to the freshwater river during natural and artificial floodings. This research aims to improve the understanding of the interactions between floodplain surface water and groundwater with salt dynamics in various spatial and temporal scales and provide a new tool to predict salt distribution with a semi-arid alluvial floodplain.

About Confirmation Seminars

The purpose of the confirmation milestone is to ensure that the candidate receives appropriate feedback in relation to the viability and progress of the thesis project and that the resources required to complete the program of research within the recommended timeframe are available. It is also an opportunity to ensure that the candidate has demonstrated the capacity and capability to successfully complete the thesis in a timely manner.
